RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Early as it was, the first two minutes of Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division 3-A semifinal at Santa Margarita High very much proved to be the deciding factor in the conclusion of the La Cañada girls' basketball team's season and the continuance of the host Eagles'. In the game's first 78 seconds, the Spartans were down by eight points and reigning All-Area Girls' Basketball Player Courtney Chen was on the bench with two quick fouls. Thus, despite a late, valiant charge by the Spartans, the early cushion was cushion enough, as second-seeded Santa Margarita, propelled by its full-court press, defeated third-seeded La Cañada, 69-57.

When you are talking about determination, it's hard to find a more extreme team than the Crescenta Valley Soccer Club Girls Under 13 squad. After a wrenching 1-0 loss in their first game, the girls fought back to reach the finals last weekend in the X-Treme Cup in Huntington Beach, taking second place against the Claremont Stars. All the more remarkable is that In their second tournament of the season, they did it without three of their players. They did it with another player, "Stopper" Kelly Clark, battling the flu. And they did it with defender Taylor Anderson jumping in wherever Coach Adam Darby needed her. In their second game on Saturday, the Silver Elite team trampled the Rancho Santa Margarita SC 8-0, with forwards Vanessa Capra and Lisa Lim scoring two goals each, and ace midfielder Jordan Royer putting the ball in the net four times.
